Dog Stories for Early Readers: Win One!

by Carrie Boyko, CEB
Easy Readers for K-2 Kids
Helping young readers enjoy the process of practicing and learning to read has a lot to do with giving them books that motivate them. Dog stories are very popular with young children at this stage. This giveaway is designed for kids who are just beginning to read on their own, although still with help from you. Maybe your dog can join too?

During our last giveaway, one enterprising reader sent us the photo below of her beautiful big boy, Vlad, enjoying a story read by her grandchildren. Isn't is just wonderful to imagine watching this scene unfold?!!!

I enjoyed receiving that photo more than you can know. It brought back memories of my own kids growing up. Such fun! Let's do it again...

This giveaway will include 3 copies of each of the two titles you see in the photo at the top: Strike Three, Marley! and Ouch! It Hurts! Entries will be open through midnight Thursday, September 5. Winners will be announced Friday afternoon, September 6.

That persnickety Rafflecopter may play dead under the spiral staircase again, but you can always tickle it by clicking on the post title at the top. It will jump up and help you join in the fun. Best of wishes to everyone who enters.

Happy tails,

These children's dog stories were purchased by me at my own expense. I encourage you to read to your children, grandchildren and any child in your life. Reading is an acquired skill that gets better with practice, even when read aloud by an adult. Enjoy!

Our little Popstar is an avid 'reader' at the tender age of not-quite-2. She'd LOVE either one! Oh, and she could 'read' it to me too!

The title sounds engaging for young boys. They can also empathize with being hurt by a shot or something else. It creates a real life to text connection for them.

Yes Because boys will be boys and they always have bumps and bruises! I know because I had 3 boys and I have a grandson. They are always getting hurt because the are very active!

To help kids not to be so scared of the doctor.

Because of all the recent disasters and the offer for the free pet first aid kit to raise awareness of pet injuries

Hmmm... I think "Ouch it Hurts" was picked because of the First Aid Twitter Party on September 10th :)

Ouch it hurts so that boys will be more sensitive and socially aware

It might be geared towards little girls to be nurturing? Just a guess.

I'd guess that you picked "ouch It Hurts" because of the #Pet1stAid #twitter #party on Sept 10th. Thanks for the giveaway.

Wehaf said...

"Ouch, it hurts" is maybe in honor of the first aid party?

Kathleen said...

I'm guessing it would be the selection for girls since you think boys would go toward "Marley" Thanks! Kathleen on the RC

I'm guessing it will teach kids that their pets need their space and time to recover when they get injured. Once the pet is healed, the kids can play with them again!

My nephew James has a lot of trouble reading. I want him to work on this so he needs lots of fun books and animals are one of his favorite subjects.
